How To Choose The Right Complementary Or Alternative Therapy For You
Here's our firsthand experience!
During a holistic medical consultation, you sit down with a certified functional medical practitioner to discuss what makes you tick: physically, mentally, and emotionally. You talk about what you eat, how often you move/exercise, how well you sleep, and what you do for self-care. A drop of your blood is then examined under a microscope and projected onto a monitor so you can see exactly what’s going on as your doctor gives his or her analysis. This is also how they assist you in setting up your treatment regimen and how often you should come back.
I wasn’t expecting the procedure to knock me out but it did! I was also told to put off any possibly strenuous tasks (working out, running errands, etc.) until the next day to let the acupuncture work its magic. Sure enough, I napped again when I arrived home and slept much better than I usually do that night.
What I was quite apprehensive about was the colon cleanse. Out of all of Centro Holistico’s offerings, this is the most unglamorous one, but comes highly recommended as it helps flush toxins out of the system. I was escorted into a bathroom equipped with a special bed built to help facilitate the procedure and make you feel comfortable as you take what feels like the world’s longest bathroom break.
Centro Holistico also offers intravenous drip therapies that infuse high doses of vitamins and minerals into the body to address specific needs. I was recommended to do the nutrient therapy and laser therapy to assist in tissue repair and up regulate my immune system, but could not do so at the time because I was in between doses of the Covid vaccine. If you’re in the same boat, please prioritize your vaccines and save any intravenous treatments for until your personal physician gives you the all-clear.
